Random Media is set to release Poltergeist star Oliver Robins' new horror film Celebrity Crush later this month, and today we've gotten our hands on the official trailer to share with our readers.
Written and directed by, and starring Robins, Celebrity Crush follows the star of the fictional 1985 B-rated horror movie Chain-Face Clown, Jonathan Blaklee (Robins). No one knew the film would one day become a classic. Heralded as a cinematic "tour de force", well, at least by a select group of horror movie fans.
"The film’s biggest fan, 29 year-old Hilary Lynessa (Alissa Schneider), always knew she was going to meet and fall in love with Blaklee. For Hilary, Jonathan is the perfect soulmate. She has idolized him and the film ever since she can remember. Hilary has a collection of Chain Face Clown memorabilia that would impress even the most ardent fan. But, there is one item she has yet to attain… Jonathan Blaklee.
After meeting Jonathan at a horror convention, she imprisons the ex-child actor with the misguided hope Jonathan will one day fall in love with her."
Celebrity Crush also stars Melissa McNerney (Fingers), Jonathan D. Lee (Clique) and Wade Williams (Zombie Clean Up). Robins co-wrote the film with Jeff Rubin.
Filmed in Florida, Celebrity Crush premiered at Dances With Films, and picked up ‘Best Horror Movie’ at Melbourne Independent Film Festival. It was produced by Michael Baumgarten (Smitty) and Robins, in association with Tel K. Ganesan and G.B. Thimotheose of Kyyba Films.
The fan obsessed feature will release on-demand and on all digital platforms on May 26, 2020.
